The one thing that really turns me on is a man who works hard taking care of his own. I came from a family of dairy farmers and it just breaks my heart to see that way of life dying out.

I know Chad personally and if anyone could save a herd, it would be the Skrettebergs. Good job Chad and Loren. This is just another indication that people in North Dakota don't sit around and wait for help.

Well done, Mr. Skretteberg! I hope all floodwaters recede soon so your farm can get back to normal.

Outstanding! It warms my heart to read something like this. It also broke my heart last year to see the Iowa feedlot pigs suffering so much before most eventually drowned. I also come from a long line of farmers, I hope the Skrettebergs have a long and prosperous agricultural lives. I'm from Minnesota, but North Dakota rocks!
